How many times have you seen this sign? Of course we all had assumed any change the homeless received was obviously for beer.
One day I walked past an ungodly sight.
A woman of the streets, but something was missing. Where’s the beer?
I was immediately in denial thinking that maybe she was a normal person who had grown tired and decided to sit down. Maybe she was a normal person? Wrong.
She admitted she was homeless. A fire fueled inside me as I tried to keep myself together. I inquired of her sandwich to which she replied, “I am hungry”
Everyone knows the old phrase “there’s a ham sandwich in every beer”. So why the sudden change? Then it hit me, maybe the homeless around the country are now falling victim to this addiction. As they dig deeper they start feeding lies to the public that is supplying them with the loose change to support this lifestyle. I went undercover and took to the streets.
What I found opened my eyes. So I am here to report to you what I experienced first hand and to expose these sober food addicts! I know it is heart breaking to see the pictures you are about to see but I still believe there are some honest drunks out there on the streets and I plan to find them.
SIGNS OF DECEIT
So why the lies?
The truth isn’t cute, clever or humorous in any way. It’s depressing. When people feel like others are starving, it isn’t good for a giggle anymore. The American public will undoubtedly be quite upset and may very well turn their backs on these cuddly street personalities for good.

Sandwiches being sold in alley ways instead of drugs. Underground markets of young persons peddling tuna salad and sometimes even sliced turkey are now the norm. It’s not an easy life to live out there but they are only looking out for themselves.
What about the children? I know this is hard to look at so join me in changing the world around us. What can you do to help? Stop giving them money and pass them a beer!
